Just The Right Thing For Your Heart

by Nancy on February 16, 2014

Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women and that more women die from heart attacks then men? I didn’t.

This month The American Heart Association is promoting heart disease education for women through their “Go Red For Women” campaign. I assumed all heart attack symptoms were the same, sharp pain in the chest = heart attack. NOT so for women! In fact, many of the symptoms of heart attack in women are non-specific and you probably feel one (or several of them) on any given day.

My husband forwarded me the link to this entertaining (but serious) short video about symptoms of heart attack:

Find out if you are at risk for heart disease. Then check with your doctor and take some steps to prevent it. Healthy is always just the right thing.

Oh, that video speaks to me! I think we all believe if we just keep going things will be fine. Yeah, it doesn’t work like that!

My mother thought gas & hearburn. It turned she had apparently had several small heart attacks before she ended up with the quadruple bypass.
